    Mate, nobody is going to bother reading through that, or very few people will unless you actually make some effort yourself and say WHAT particularly you have found is going wrong, what is your principal error? If it compiles Is there something crazy going on in the output? does the program loop forever?
    With that sort of info people can look at potential problem areas quickly, without reading lots of code.
    Thought for the day:
    "Are you sure your sanity chip is fully screwed in sir?" (Kryten)
    FLTK: "The most fun you can have with your clothes on."

    Stroustrup:
    "If I had thought of it and had some marketing sense every computer and just about any gadget would have had a little 'C++ Inside' sticker on it'"

    hello again can someone please help...

    the program runs fine the first time but when i run it the second time it doesnt work as its suposed to-

    1- when user is asked to enter y-to continue and n- to stop playing it doesnt matter what user enters it just continues the game
    2-if i choose f to guess the film title the title is not covered by stars its name is just printed. sometimes the full movie sometimes half and tolower function doesnt work.
    3- and when i choose c the second time i run the program it just asks me to choose again f or c and if i pick it again program stops running or asks me to choose again f works fine appart from the problem above.


    if im still not giving enough info to get help please let me know ill write more...
